Since he arrived in London, Antonio Conte has had one overriding wish, which was to sign a centre-back trained in his homeland. The football club has tripped up regarding a number of targets this time, most notably in losing Romelu Lukaku, and Conte is not impressed. With Diego Simeone increasingly agitated by his side's inability to do business, the Blues expect Atletico to meet their asking price shortly. The Belgian defender did not manage to establish himself as a firm first-choice at Parc des Princes, having had to share game time with Serge Aurier.
Some have stated AC Milan has shown interest in Costa, but the Spaniard's heart may be set on a return to Atletico.
In all, the 25-year-old made 36 appearances across all competitions for PSG, turning in several solid performances while chipping in with a respectable return of 2 goals and 7 assists.
Los Blancos are set to lose Danilo this summer, with the Brazilian set to call time on his career at the Bernabeu after spending the last two seasons playing second fiddle to Dani Carvajal.
Thus, Zinedine Zidane has turned his attention towards Meunier over a move in this summer's transfer window. As punters who take advantage of online betting in NZ can attest to, he has not ever been required to cover a full-back position, and that has restricted him from a number of games in what is definitely his strongest position. In January it almost pushed him for a transfer to Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian, but he finished out the year and helped the Blues secure the Premier League title.
There's been blood, there's been tears, but it looks as though Costa's chapter at Chelsea is about to be closed.
"For me, Aubameyang will be the best player to adapt for the Conte system".
Does the Chelsea Football Club really need Antonio Rüdiger, especially to the tune of £34m?
In an Instagram live video, the Spaniard is seen wearing his former club's colours, while he wrote in Spanish in the comments section "give a hug to Conte".
